WELL, I CAN'T TEACH THE TRUTH ANY BETTER THAN POLITICAL OPERATIVE, SENATOR, PRESIDENTIAL OPERATIVE AND CATHOLIC REVERT, MARCO RUBIO!

This seems authentic to me and very well said and very Catholic!

Senator Marco Rubio was baptized as a Catholic, turned to Mormonism as a youth, married a Southern Baptist, and has gone to Baptist and Catholic services. As reporter Lauren Markoe of Religion News Service notes, in his autobiography Rubio explained his devotion to Catholicism this way:
  
 “I craved, literally, the Most Blessed Sacrament, Holy Communion, the sacramental point of contact between the Catholic and the liturgy of heaven,” he wrote. “I wondered why there couldn’t be a church that offered both a powerful, contemporary gospel message and the actual body and blood of Jesus.” Starting in late 2004, he began to delve deeper into his Roman Catholic roots, reading the whole catechism, and concluding that “every sacrament, every symbol and tradition of the Catholic faith is intended to convey, above everything else, the revelation that God yearns, too, for a relationship with you.”

Votes, votes, votes.

Well, those cravings are easily filled at any Catholic Church. Our Lord is there, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. I agree with anon, this is probably more for votes than anything else. I do hope it's a true conversion back to the Faith. The Eucharist can't be found in some protestant eccleastical community.
